Lending An Ear: A Dialogue with Postgraduates

Lending An Ear: A Dialogue with Postgraduates

In this event, postgraduates had the opportunity to engage directly with representatives from Sunway University’s upper management to discuss matters concerning our postgraduate students. We are grateful to have Prof. Abhimanyu Veerakumarasivam, Provost of Sunway University, Prof. Chai Lay Ching, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Education), and Prof. Mahendhiran Nair, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research Engagement & Impact) to lend their listening ears during the panel discussion and provide us with their feedback on the issues raised by the students. It was a fruitful session and we hope to have more events of a similar nature in the future.
